aleks

SHORT FORM OF:
aleksander, aleksandar, aleksandra
OTHER SCRIPTS:
serbian (Алекс)
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
ALéXō ANḗR / ANDRóS > ALéXANDROS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ALéXō ‎(ἀλέξω) ANḗR ‎(ἀνήρ) ANDRóS ‎(ἀνδρός) ALéXANDROS (Αλέξανδρος)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Aléxandros (Αλέξανδρος)”, composed of two elements: “aléxō ‎(ἀλέξω)” (keep off, turn aside, guard, protect, defend, help) plus “anḗr ‎(ἀνήρ) andrós ‎(ἀνδρός)” (man “adult male”, husband). In turn the name means “defending men, protector of men”. This definition is an example of the widespread motif of Greek (or Indo-European more generally) names expressing "battle-prowess", in this case the ability to withstand or push back an enemy battle line. The name was one of the titles, "epithets", given to the Greek goddess Hera and as such is usually taken to mean "one who comes to save warriors". The most famous linked to this root is Alexander the Great, who created one of the largest empires in ancient history.
